Federal hiring proves to be recession-proof

Tom Curry reports at MSNBC.
"While overall payroll employment in the United States has fallen by nearly five percent since the official start of the recession in December 2007, there are 12 percent more federal workers today than there were when the downturn started, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics."
"going back to the Bush presidency, a report from the Congressional Research Service found last April that that 'the federal workforce grew by more than 350,000 employees between 2000 (the low point during the last 12 years) and 2010... .'"
